Benefits of hiring a property manager

Owning and maintaining rental properties is a hefty task with a lot of responsibility. Hiring a property manager to take charge of that responsibility can help lighten your load and ensure the place is run smoothly and efficiently. Here are a few ways a property manager can make you a more successful landlord.

Ensure you have only the best tenants

Reviewing rental applications and screening out the bad apples takes time — time you probably don’t have. With a property manager on staff, you’ll have a dedicated person who can assess every application and narrow the pool down to the best potential tenants. An experienced property manager knows how to spot red flags early on and can help your property select reliable residents.

Follow up with tenants in a timely manner

Landlords often have other jobs or projects to keep them busy and don’t have enough time to respond to inquiries or communicate regularly with residents. That’s when the property manager can step in and ensure issues are addressed, notices are posted and everything gets done in a timely fashion.

Increase tenant retention

In addition to filling the property with great tenants, a property manager can also help keep those tenants around for years. When residents know someone is actually putting in the time and effort to maintain the building and they have someone they can speak with face-to-face about problems, they’ll feel cared for and satisfied with their living situation. An active property manager will go a long way toward keeping tenants happy and increasing lease renewals.

Enforce policies and deadlines

Property managers can help set a precedent for tenants that policies need to be followed and rent payments need to be turned in on time. When tenants miss a payment or break a policy, a property manager can follow up with them so you don’t have to worry about getting involved or tracking people down. Experienced property managers will also know the proper actions to take if situations don’t improve and eviction is the only option.

Hiring a property manager will keep everything running smoothly and ensure your rental property remains in great shape. It’ll also take the heavy load of responsibility off your shoulders so you can focus on other priorities.
